Trouble with my mojo.



















Although its school holidays and I usually find lots of time to craft, my mojo decided to go walkabout a couple of days ago.  I have spent ages looking through lots of blogs and flickr sites to try and get some inspiration ( there are some truely amazing blogs out there and some wonderful cards). 
Early this year lots of people were making these flower pot cards and as I had not tried one, I decided to give it a go.

I used the Hero Arts "outline flowers" stamp and paperpieced in pinks and browns, really simple to do and gives a great effect.  This card is for the paperpieced challenge over at Jennys blog, she has lots of great ideas and her site is  well worth a visit.
Hopefully my mojo has returned as I have lots of birthdays coming up and need to get crafting!!!!

Hi Sally your mojo has definitely returned - this card is really gorgeous I love those outline flowers and the detail you've added with the perfect pearls is a lovely touch. I also love the folded card across the pot - I've seen this in ribbon but its very effective in card too.

You mentioned that you browsed not only other blogs but also flickr groups, again thats something I haven't done (well actually I did look at yours once!!) its something I would like to set up too - so when I do I know who to come to for advice! (if that OK with you anyway!?)

Take care and enjoy the rest of your week off and especially this gorgeous sunshine!

I honestly do not understand the whole "mojo" thing. My creativity goes in and out on a daily basis. LOL! The simplest thing may swing my mood at any given moment, and in turn my mind is blocked. Then I look around, see some new designs, and YEAH the creative juices are flowing again. I think we make too much of this "mojo" concept! My advice, go with the flow!

Sally, I love your flower pot card, your sense of design is wonderful. there is so much texture and detail on these beautiful flowers! :)

Lovely flower card, Sally! The ruffle is brilliant as are the wonderful flowers. It's safe to say your mojo has returned if this is any indication. Sometimes just taking some time off can give our mojo a jolt of fresh perspective.
blessings to you,
